    Default how far along into the pregnancy can you feel twins kick?

    hi
    im currently 15 weeks 4 days into my 4th pregnancy to twins i was just wondering how far along into the pregnancy can you feel twins kick and move? this is my first pregnancy to twins and not sure how things work with being pregnant to twins. ive been getting the pressure feeling being pushed out of my stomach like i am being kicked but it could also be just muscle stretching. if you could give me some suggestions on what im feeling that would be great thanx

    I can't really help, I'm at 19w1d with twins as my first pregnancy and wanting to know the same answer.
    I felt "bubbles" at 17w2d, and maybe again at 17w4d, but then nothing at all. Both placentas are posterior, so that's not masking movement sensations. It was a relief yesterday at the morph scan to see that they do actually move, I'm just no good at feeling it.

    I'm nearly 22 weeks and I'm surprised that I haven't had much movement. I was definitely feeling a lot more at this stage with ds. Maybe there is just not enough room for somersaults and that is what we are used to with singletons!!

    I can't remember exactly, but I was probably around 19-20 weeks when I felt mine kick. My placentas are anterior which might affect that but was also surprised it was quite late compared to my single babies. At 36 weeks now they are moving a LOT!

    Like all pregnancies it depends on the positioning of placenta. I felt squirms from 16 weeks but no big kicks until 20ish weeks.

    I think I felt kicks at about 16 weeks, which is far earlier than my singleton pregnancies. I had anterior placentas with all my pregnancies.
